Industrial Ovens

Industrial ovens are thermal processing machines. Ovens use heat to treat materials in many ways. The name for a given heat treatment process reflects the kind of property changes that occur in a product when it is heated; drying, baking, and dehydrating are processes of moisture removal, curing is the process of strengthening, and firing is the process of hardening ceramics. Industrial ovens are also used to activate gel and fuse materials together, heatset, heat shrink, preheat, sinter, melt, laminate, and thermal bond materials.

Industrial ovens may be used for a broad variety of applications. These are for powder coating, drying, baking, curing, and many others. These ovens are capable of reaching a wide range of temperatures. Higher temperature industrial ovens may be used for drying materials and are sometimes called kilns, though they do not reach temperatures quite as high as traditional ceramic kilns. Lower temperature industrial ovens may be used for baking or curing and are found in places such as factories or bakeries. Industrial ovens come in many shapes and sizes; some come designed similarly to a home oven, while others are large enough for people to walk into them. There are also some industrial ovens that have a conveyor running through them in order to heat mass quantities of items over a short span of time.

Industrial ovens vary greatly in size and shape. Some are very large and contain many shelves and could be used for baking many loaves of bread at once. Ovens may be installed in large trucks or on carts for portability. The one thing all of these ovens have in common is they are all temperature controlled according to their purpose. Industrial ovens specifically designed to remove the moisture from objects placed inside are called drying oven. Industrial ovens designed for curing are made to cause chemical reactions between the coating and the product itself. Like ovens found in homes, some industrial ovens are designed specifically for food production. Although industrial ovens used for food production are typically much larger and reach temperatures much higher than the average domestic oven, the method of baking food is the same.

Heat is a major factor in all manufacturing industries. Virtually every product engaged in the production process requires heat introduction at some point. Among the major sources of this form of energy are industrial ovens. They are hot and insulated chambers utilized in industries for drying, baking, or treating various parts or components before, during, or even after their creation.

Benefits of Using Industrial Ovens

Industries utilize ovens for a variety of reasons:

Industrial Oven Applications

The number of applications for industrial ovens is almost infinite. They are used in the electronic industry for degassing epoxy resins, reacting elements, and other purposes. Food and beverage companies also use ovens for sterilization of items before other purposes.

Other industries that use ovens include:

In applications that require temperatures above 2000 degrees F, an industrial is ideal. Furnaces require large spaces, and the desired temperature is introduced directly into the chamber, unlike ovens that utilize a system of ductwork to distribute hot air onto the raw materials being processed.

Since then, further advancements have followed, and although the first electric ovens were invented late in the 19th Century, power was not yet as extensive as it is today. The introduction of high-tech ovens began with Percy Spencer’s microwave in 1946. After it was patented, more productions, adaptations, and the creation of large scale ovens emerged.

How Industrial Ovens Work?

Ovens provide consistent burning environments, and with separate chambers for cooling and warming, they have various sources of thermal energy. Hot water, electricity, and gas are the most common sources, all of which are introduced into the oven through forced convection.

Electrical ovens are the most popular types because of their rapid sweltering process and their durability. They are inexpensive and are less polluting. On the other hand, ovens fired by gas are available in direct and indirect configurations and can either use propane or natural gas. They are more expensive than the electric types, but with considerably cheaper running costs. In hot water ovens, the water passes through radiator coils for the emission of energy. They are the preferred choice for applications that require lower temperatures and where quick heating time is not necessary.

The most common type of oven, the convection oven, functions by blowing jets of hot steam through coils or hot panels. When this happens, the material is quickly warmed up, improving the functionality and the operational efficacy of the machine. Once the raw materials have been placed in the oven, a temperature knob is adjusted to a particular degree. Each task has a different temperature specification.

In other models, the air is drawn by fans through the coils and propelled back to the compartments via plenums installed in the side walls; this results in temperatures that are uniform and consistent.

Components of the Industrial Oven

Ovens are made up of several components. They include:

Use and Installation of Industrial Ovens

Several factors influence the installation of ovens. Location is one of them. Industrial ovens should be located where they are protected from damage by high temperatures, vibrations, or even mechanical damage. Space should be adequate, and they should not be against a wall. Because most ovens are made of stainless steel cabinets, they tend to expand when they burn. This is why leveling them with shims is appropriate. Proper ventilation is a must in the installation area. This should prevent accumulation of vapor that could be potentially hazardous.

Another thing to pay attention to during installation is the method of heating. Whether by electricity, hot water, or gas, the installation should be done according to the specifications and codes provided. The most important thing is to let professionals do the work for you. Do not attempt to install or operate the machine if you do not have the technical know-how. Familiarize yourself with all the necessary aspects that will ensure optimum performance.

Design and Customization of Industrial Ovens

Many aspects go into the design of an oven. As an alternative to buying a pre-designed device to fulfill a specific task, you can design your own or customize an existing machine to fit a particular job. While there are many standard models available, a custom designed oven can be made to fit your needs exactly.

The first thing to consider is the exact purpose of the custom machine. Will it be used for food processing or in the manufacture of equipment? Determination of the specific task, or a combination of functions, influences the optimizations you will consider. The next thing to consider is how the machine should function—for instance, by electricity or gas. Also worth noting is the temperature requirement.

Other Necessary Components for Industrial Ovens

MAlthough ovens are standalone fixtures, there are other necessary components required during their installation. Apart from sources of power, gas and water, piping and venting options, other components like shims are required to keep them firmly in place. Incinerators and exhausts for waste disposal are also necessary. To foster safety, the installation of alarms and fire extinguishers is highly recommended.

Safety and Compliance Standards for Industrial Ovens

Due to many hours of operation, with doors closed and compartments spattered with raw material resins, ovens need regular cleaning and maintenance if you want to get the best out of them. There are various compliance and safety standards to be considered.

During operation, wearing protective gear is of great importance. It is imperative one avoid direct smelling of gases and keep away from hot parts. Should there be any wet spills or boil overs, use appropriate cleaning measures with industrial grade solutions. Ensuring compartments are sealed appropriately is the first thing to do before firing on the machine.

Other safety precautions include:
